Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The information presented in this article provides a basis for individual variability in the sensation of pain and the behavioral correlates associated with pain. The knowledge of pain-inhibitory and pain-facilitating pathways linked to cognitive, emotional, and stress-response systems leads to a greater understanding of the complexities of the experience of pain. Appreciation of the influence of these higher centers should lead to improvements in the clinical management of pain.
